How to make a trailer for Tiller Neva
What equipment is suitable for Neva trailers?
There is a large selection of inventory models that differ in size and material from which they are made. Depending on the model, the fixtures may also differ in the way they are installed on the tiller. In any case, the structure should not touch the equipment, and the bends of the metal plates should be directed towards the movement of the unit. Often, some models of equipment are additionally weighted in order to better adhere the tiller to the soil. Not knowing which lugs are best for Neva trailers, many beginners make mistakes. In practice, the operation of the equipment of the KMS company proved to be the most effective.
Each such product weighs about 12 kg. The diameter of the lugs from this manufacturer is 46 cm, which makes it possible to effectively plow any type of soil. In addition to them, the inventory of the “KUM” company is also popular. They are ideal for hilling and deep plowing. The weight of these “wheels” is 15 kg.
Tiller “Neva” lugs. functions, suitable models and production
Tillers “Neva” not only plow the soil with high quality, but also help to carry out other work in the garden and vegetable garden. For this purpose, vehicle owners often use various attachments, one of which is a lug.
Let’s find out what tasks such an inventory is designed to cope with, and how to make it yourself.
Tiller lug functions
This kind of inventory is a product in the form of wheels, equipped with metal curved plates. The equipment is completely made of durable metal alloys.
Tiller lugs “Neva” perform a number of important functions. They are primarily intended to improve the traction of the machine on loose soil. Apart from this, they are also used for other important tasks:
- The inventory is intended for better processing of heavy soil;
- The equipment makes the tiller heavier, which makes it possible to use attachments of a different type;
- The lug effectively removes weeds with thick stems;
- Inventory allows the tiller with a loaded trailer to climb the hill faster.
All this makes the lugs for the Neva tiller an indispensable assistant for any farmer. Despite the wide functionality, this kind of inventory is inexpensive, which allows anyone to purchase it.
Ways to make a self-made lug
Despite the simple design of such equipment, everyone who wants to make it with their own hands must draw a diagram and be able to handle a welding machine and an angle grinder.
This will help to make a sufficiently durable product that is ready to serve for a long period. To work you will need:
- Make detailed drawings of the inventory;
- Metal plates;
- angle grinder and welding machine;
- Calculate the diameter of the canopy.
There are several simple methods for creating a lug. You can make equipment for the MB 1 and MB 2 tiller models from old car rims or a used gas cylinder.
The manufacturing algorithm from unnecessary car rims is as follows:
- First, weld a metal half-shaft to the disks, on which the plates will be attached;
- Next, make sharp teeth from another piece of metal plate;
- Fasten the teeth on the rim mowing line at a distance of 15 cm from each other.
The second method requires more time and effort. Performing it, you should act according to the following algorithm:
- Cut out 2 discs from the balloon, 20 cm high and 8 cm wide. they will play the role of rims;
- Next, install and secure metal plates on the rims;
- Weld steel teeth to the plate, at least 10 cm long.
Once the lug is ready, you can paint it. A layer of paint will help protect the product from corrosion.
There are other methods of self-made inventory. They are not very popular, since some of them require the help of a turner, while others will have to spend a considerable amount of money to buy material.
How to make a trailer for a tiller yourself: step by step instructions
tiller is a very useful and multifunctional technique for a private household. With its help, you can perform various work on the land. But also with its help you can carry out the transportation of considerable goods. And for this you need a tiller cart. There are many ready-made trailer models on sale. But their cost and quality are not always satisfactory. How to make a high-quality trailer for a tiller with your own hands, while spending a minimum of funds and efforts, we will tell you in this article.
Dump trailer for tiller
In order to make your trailer a tipper, when designing the frame, weld the usual door hinges. “droplets” to beams 1 and 2 (shown in the photo below). To avoid tipping the body during driving and loading, it can be secured by welding a latch (such as a door latch) to the edge of the frame. Such a trailer is ideal for such trailer models as Neva MB-1, Neva MB-2, MTZ, Oka and other models of well-known manufacturers.
The body is made of wooden planks or sheet metal. For additional strength, stiffeners should be provided on the sides and bottom. In wooden bodies, the corners are reinforced with metal corners. It is recommended to make the tailgate on hinges, for the possibility of opening (the tailgate will be especially useful for dumping units).
How to make a trailer for a tiller with your own hands?
Theoretically, a cart for a tiller can be divided into such basic units. wheels, body, frame, hitch. Before starting work, you first need to think over the design to the smallest detail, calculate the dimensions and create drawings. Also pay attention to such points as the connection of solid assemblies and parts (welding, screwing, riveting), the connection of moving assemblies (bushings, bearings, hinges, axle), seat design (simple or adjustable), body functionality (dump truck or static), footrests (platform or footrests), etc.
After you have decided on the project of the future trailer and selected the necessary materials, you need to clean the blanks from rust and dirt, if necessary, cut them off and fit to the drawings, fasten them. Upon completion of the work, it is advisable to paint the trailer.
The step-by-step work on a homemade cart for a tiller is as follows.
Hitch and seat
Upon completion of the main work, after fastening all the main components of the structure, you can proceed to the assembly of the remaining parts of the trailer. The most important are the hitch and the seat.
The hitch can be made from 3 pieces of pipe and a trailing mechanism (in our case, this is a tee designed specifically for the tiller hitch unit). This hitch is bolted to the frame. The hitch device is shown in more detail in the diagram below. The seat can be welded on a regular one, for example, from an old car, or you can equip the front of the trailer with a seat-tool box. Its dimensions will depend on the overall trailer design. The main thing is not to use too thin boards and to securely fix the box.
The wheel axle can also be manufactured by yourself. For this, a steel rod is taken at least 1.07 cm in length and 30 mm in diameter.
The length should be taken into account and adjusted based on the dimensions of the trailer body. Wheels can be selected from old gardening equipment, from a handcart, motorcycle, moped or car. it all depends on the dimensions of the future product. Diagrams of 2 options for fastening the wheel chassis are shown in the figures below.
A single-axle trailer has a significant drawback. a shifted center of gravity. Because of this, the body can overturn, the load in it, or this will completely lead to equipment breakdown. For a large wheelbarrow designed to carry large loads, a two-axle structure should be designed. Basic fixings and parts will remain the same as for the single axle bogie project.
Assembling the frame for the trailer to the tiller
The simplest option for making a frame is to connect a piece of pipe or metal profile to the wheel axle.
This option is suitable for a small trailer, to the frame of which a ready-made body will be attached. For a more reliable and powerful design, you need to weld the frame from round and rectangular pipes and corners.
Two-axle trolley trailed to the APM adapter
The structure of this trolley is a frame and two attached axles.
The difference from the previous model is that it is not intended for the transportation of bulk cargo.
It does not have a bottom, but this can be fixed with a sheet of metal or plywood of the appropriate size. In this case, the length of the sheet can be changed if necessary.
However, the maximum carrying capacity is twice that of the single-axle version and amounts to 500 kg.
- The two-axle bogie has a ground clearance of 18 cm and a track of 99 cm.
- The two-axle bogie is characterized by great maneuverability, as well as the presence of pneumatic tires.
- Maximum travel speed. 12 km / h.
- Overall dimensions: length adjustable from 190 cm to 250 cm, width. 41.5 cm, and height 110 cm
Trailed trolley TPM-M
The letter M in the title indicates that this is a trailer trolley TPM M, only modernized.
Engineers reduced the size of the bogie, but the performance remained the same.
This model measures 222 cm long, 112.5 cm wide, 120 cm high. The weight of the improved model is also less. Now he is 85 kg.
These options are most common among owners due to their ease of manufacture and cost. After reading on the forums, you can find a large number of different options for assembly.
Here is one of them:
It is necessary to draw up (or you can find a ready-made one on the Internet) a drawing of such a trailer. Then calculate the amount of required rolled metal and corners. At this time, you will just more carefully disassemble the drawing, and, if necessary, make adjustments to it.
As the bottom of the future body, you can use metal or boards of a suitable size. And install corners on their edges, which will be the basis of the entire body.
In the next step, the sides are installed on the structure. At this stage, you can think of folding sides to facilitate the loading and unloading of cargo.
Most often, one axle is installed. It should run clearly in the center. And the body itself is slightly raised forward. This allows the load not to roll off the trailer during transportation.
A steel bar can be used to secure the wheels. It must be strong to withstand heavy loads and protrude slightly over the edges of the cart.
A seat is installed on the front side for the convenience of the driver. Here you can take the old or make a new one, for which there is enough imagination. At the bottom, at a short distance, a footrest is installed on which the legs will be placed.
It is also necessary to consider the future clutch with the tiller. There are a large number of special drawings on the forums that show the diagrams and dimensions of this clutch.
For those who want to see in the video how the trailer for the Neva Tiller is assembled, you can watch a detailed video instruction:
APM models work only with additional equipment with an adapter.
This is the axle on which the seat and rear hitch are installed for further installation of the trailer. This equipment is used not only with a trailer, but also with many other attachments.
Review of trailers for tillers Neva
On the official website of the Neva tiller manufacturer (Krasny Oktyabr plant), several trailer models are presented, which are recommended for use in conjunction with their tillers.
Trailed trolley (VRMZ)
This is the only model that is not produced by Krasny Oktyabr. Based on the name it is clear that it is manufactured at the Volga plant “VRMZ”.
By its design, this is an improved model of TPM.
The main characteristic of the bogie should be its carrying capacity. In this case, it is 400 kg! And this is almost three times more than that of TPM. Therefore, it is very popular among construction companies or owners of large barns and warehouses, where it is necessary to transport large loads and travel twice unprofitable.
over, there is no need to purchase an adapter to use a VRMZ trailer. It connects directly to the gearbox shaft. And operated by sitting on board the cart.
The distance from the road to the bottom of the trailer is 30 cm.
Track gauge. 117 cm.Despite the increased carrying capacity, its weight is only 95 kg.
For convenient and safe operation, a hand brake is installed on the frame, thanks to which you can quickly stop the movement.
Like all other trailers, this model is delivered unassembled with instructions for assembly and operation.
Types and types of towing devices for Neva trailers
Tiller trailer Neva. an effective assistant in work
In the spring, when the earth has already warmed up, gardening work begins. Then the length of the working day depends not only on the desire, but also on the tool at hand. Progress and innovative technologies do not stand still, modern devices have reached the very hinterlands. Today, the most popular assistant for a working person is considered a tiller with various types of additional tools and hook-on devices.
Briefly about trailers for Tiller Neva
Among a number of well-known brands and firms, the tiller Neva with a trailer requires special attention. An import and a domestic manufacturer took care of the durability of the engine, the quality of various types of work, and a comfortable ride. The equipment of the Neva transport is simple: a body, a cultivator, a plow, a trolley for a tiller and, if desired, many other equipment.
Tiller Neva trailers are made of durable metal. Their carrying capacity depends on the size, ideally it is 250-500 kg. When carrying a load weighing more than 350 kilograms, the Neva Tiller trolley is equipped with a mechanical brake drive to make it easier to drive the vehicle.
The trailer, more popular in gardening work, tested by more than one farmer, for the tiller Neva MB-2. Thanks to the folding sides, it is possible to transport not only bulky items, but also bulk substances. It is equipped with a brake drive and will not exert a large load on the tiller itself, which undoubtedly is a plus in its favor.
Do-it-yourself cart for the tiller Neva
If you wish, you can make a trailer for the Neva Tiller with your own hands no worse than from the manufacturer. To do this, you will have to try, but in the end you will get an excellent and budget independently made trailer for the Neva tiller.
The work algorithm is as follows:
- collect all the details and prepare materials;
- choose a body type;
- cut parts according to the drawings “Tiller Neva with a trailer”
- connect the parts and tidy up the appearance of the trailer (paint or varnish).
We select materials
For a hitch to the Neva tiller, both wood and iron are good, you can also use materials that remained after the construction work. The frame for the apparatus is assembled from two iron pipes and wheels connected by bearings. The body is bolted onto the finished frame. For greater reliability, stiffeners and corners with metal inserts must be attached to the trailer. Optionally, the sides can be opened from all sides or only from one, optimally. the rear.
You can also make more complex models of carts for the Tiller Neva with your own hands. Choosing a triple hitch and taller wheels creates a completely different model. A little time and desire to make such an assistant yourself will create a unique cart model for the Tiller Neva.
Technical characteristics of the APM “Neva
This trolley is more expensive than a single-axle APM, but at the same time it can be used to transport heavier loads. The maximum weight of materials that can be placed on it is 500 kg.
The technical characteristics of this model are as follows:
ground clearance. 18 cm;
The maximum travel speed of the APM two-axle trailer is 12 km / h.

Types of carts
Such devices differ both in size and design. Trailers can be used with trailers:
uniaxial and biaxial;
four and two-wheeled;
conventional and with drop sides.
Also on sale today are solid carts of this type and collapsible. The latter option is popular with homeowners, due to the fact that it can be conveniently stored or transported to another place.
Trailers for trailers can also differ in their purpose. In some carts, it is allowed to transport, including bulk cargo. This can be, for example, earth, sand, sawdust, etc.
Other trolleys are designed for transporting ordinary goods only. A distinctive feature of such models is that they do not have a solid bottom. A cart of this type, if desired, can, however, be improved with your own hands using plywood or tin. In this case, the model can also be used for the transportation of bulk materials.
Drop-side trailers are more expensive than conventional trailers. But at the same time, they are still more popular with the owners of suburban areas. After all, it is much easier to unload bulk materials from them. Tiler dump trailers vary in size. But most often, quite large models still differ in this design.
Tiller trailer: dimensions, description, operating principle
Tiller owners today are many farmers and owners of suburban areas. With the help of such a mini-tractor, you can not only plow the land, huddle potatoes or mow. On farms, tillers are often used to transport all kinds of goods. In this case, small carts of a special design are used as attachments for them. The weights, capacities and dimensions of trailer trailers may vary.
Can I make it myself
The design of trailer trailers is extremely simple. Therefore, if desired, such a device can be made, of course, with your own hands. The dimensions of a homemade trailer for a tiller will not be difficult to choose in exact accordance with the characteristics of the mini-tractor itself.
You can make a trolley using, among other things, just materials at hand. This can be, for example, old springs and wheels, steel pipes, channel.
The frame of a homemade trolley in this case is welded in the form of a lattice. Next, two longitudinal pipes are attached to it and the strapping is assembled from above. The body is made of steel sheets by welding. The beam is made of two channels, inserting them into each other. Langerons in the manufacture of such a trolley are connected using springs, the end of which is put on the axle of the earrings and beams. Drawbar is made from pipes.
To make a trailer for a tiller, you can simply take a ready-made axle from a car. But such a cart will most likely look too bulky. When making attachments using the technology described above, it is possible, as already mentioned, among other things, to select the optimal trailer dimensions for the tiller. In this case, you can make both a large and a small cart with your own hands.
How to choose the right one: dimensions, carrying capacity
When buying a trolley for a tiller, first of all, you should pay attention to what kind of load it is designed for. This indicator is chosen in accordance with how and how often the mini tractor is supposed to be used to transport various kinds of materials.
Of course, when choosing the carrying capacity of the trolley, the capabilities of the tiller itself should also be taken into account. The maximum weight of materials that such equipment can move is usually indicated in its technical data sheet.
The size of a trailer for a tiller is also an important indicator. It depends on it how much cargo, for example, hay, can subsequently be transported on a mini-tractor. This indicator, of course, must also be selected in accordance with the technical characteristics of the plowman.
For example, the optimal dimensions of the trailer for the MTZ tiller are 140 x 100 cm.Such carts are capable of transporting loads weighing about 350 kg.
How trolleys work
Depending on the size of the trailer for the tiller, loads of different volumes and weights can be transported on it. The larger the model, the less it will have to walk on it later when transporting materials. That is, the most convenient to operate, of course, are large trailers. However, such carts are suitable, of course, not for all models of mini-tractors.
Almost all domestic trailer trailers are delivered to the market unassembled. But it will not be difficult to assemble such a device on your own. Trailers are connected to the mini-tractor gearbox.
The principle of operation of such attachments is extremely simple. If necessary, plywood or sheet metal is placed on the support axles of the trolley. Further, the cargo is placed in the body. The owner controls the tiller during transportation, sitting on the seat.
In addition to the main driver’s seat, a simple folding bench is installed, which is attached to the front side of the body and rests on the side ones. Some tiller trailers are additionally equipped with a spare wheel. It can be positioned on the side board or at the bottom of the trailer on the metal bottom using special fasteners.
Near the driver’s seat, for the convenience of storing small tools that may be needed on the road and during repairs, small homemade metal boxes or special bags are fixed.
Trailer for tiller UNDER CONSTRUCTION part.1
In order for the trailer not to accidentally roll on a slope and stand firmly on the road, a simple brake system is provided for it. How to make brakes on a trailer to a tiller? It is best to use a parking structure from a car or motorcycle and secure the mechanism near the driver’s seat with bolts.
As with any vehicle, the braking system is one of the road safety factors. You can make brakes yourself by using a cable, traction and a drum:
- A drum is attached to the hub of one of the wheels.
- Take a brake disc and weld a small piece of pipe to it.
- Put the mechanism on the axle.
- Fix the brake pads with a cable to the axle, pull the cable to the lever near the driver’s seat.
Brakes are usually not installed on two wheels. One parking brake is also enough for the trailer to the tiller.
The process of assembling the structure is simple, and you can perform it completely independently, having at hand the tools and materials necessary for the work, as well as a little knowledge in locksmithing. The work is carried out in the following order:
- Creation of working documentation (project) with schemes for the installation of trailed equipment for the tiller.
- Selection of material for the manufacture of the frame and other devices of the future design.
- Choosing a workplace where the trailer will be assembled.
- Performing preliminary marking of mounting elements and nodes of the trailer mechanism.
- Laying out finished parts and aligning corners.
- Connecting the elements of the attachment.
In this video, you will learn how to make a trailer yourself:
Drawbar is a system of welded pipes that are connected to the side members of the trailer. In the place where the pipes come off, a coupling device is installed in front. The connection should be simple, strong and ensure easy rotation of the trailer cart behind the tiller. Often, for such a coupling, a standard mechanism of factory trailers for towbars of cars is used.
How to make a Cultivator Mini Tiller with 49cc 2-Stroke Engine
To hitch a trailer with your own hands, you need:
- At the junction of the drawbar pipes, a section of a fortieth pipe 10 centimeters long is welded.
- Two bearings are installed inside the pipe.
- A washer is installed on the pipe from the side of the trailed trolley, into which the axle of the trailing device with a threaded thread will subsequently be inserted.
- The hitch is made from a piece of square pipe. A through hole is drilled through two opposite surfaces with a diameter corresponding to the fixing pin.
- The square pipe can be additionally reinforced with a sheet of metal, the edges of the pipe are bent.
Such a system reliably ensures structural stability and ease of operation. By means of a hitch, the tiller can be adapted as a light car trailer.
Do-it-yourself trailer for a tiller
Auto mechanic specializing in agricultural machinery
a tiller on the farm is a pretty useful thing. It becomes even a great helper if it is equipped with a trailer in which you can transport various things, tools and materials. Some of the tiller models on the market do not meet the buyer’s requirements. By purchasing such a powerful assistant, their owners plan in advance to start making an additional hitch to the tiller on their own.
Such attachments save costs to a large extent, rather than buying a finished product. So, how to make a trailer to a tiller with your own hands?
Required tools and materials
For the high-quality performance of work on assembling the trailer, the following tool is prepared:
- welding machine;
- angle grinder for cutting material with a set of cutting wheels;
- tape measure and ruler, protractor and square;
- marking tools (chalk, ink, marker);
- percussion tool (hammer), chisel and pliers;
- yew for fastening parts, clamps and clamps;
- electric drill with a set of drills of various diameters for metal work;
- equipment for installing rivets in the trailer body.
It is made from a square tube that is cut into separate sections. Pipe sections are welded together, forming a frame with crossbars. Every corner is carefully measured. After the frame is ready, it is boiled again around the perimeter. The finished product is primed and painted with paint and varnish material.
The trailer should not be overloaded, otherwise it will quickly become unusable. The service life of the entire structure depends on the quality of the frame element. Therefore, before starting work, it is necessary to determine what maximum load the hitch will carry and for what purposes it will be used.
There are three main trailer models:
- Light. Designed for a load of no more than 70 kg. This is usually a lightweight cart with one axle on which the driver’s seat is mounted. A trailer for transportation of goods is welded to the axle.
- Universal. It can transport small loads already up to 120 kg over rough terrain. For greater strength, an I-beam is used as a material for the manufacture of the frame.
- Heavy. In these instances, a metal profile and elements of an automobile chassis on a rubber track are used. Heavy trailer options are more reliable and durable, although slightly more expensive than other designs.
Some craftsmen make a dump trailer for a tiller. In work, it resembles the body of a cargo dump truck, but in order to make such a structure with your own hands, you need to clearly adhere to all dimensions of the drawing. There are no standard sizes for a trailer, the main thing is that it is not too wide and that it maneuvers comfortably, moving behind the tiller.
The design of the trailed part of the tiller itself is not particularly difficult, but the chassis is a completely different matter. It is based on a beam, at the ends of which the hubs are located. The channel is welded together so that a square is obtained. The weld is made solid for structural strength. On the lower part of the square (beam), the hubs are welded, the wheels for the trailer are put on to the tiller and their parallelism is checked. If the condition is met, then the structure is welded correctly.
The beam and the frame of the trailer are connected by means of springs installed in special brackets on the frame, previously provided in the diagram. The entire structure of the assembled trailer is checked for stability, it must not tip over.
Advice. In order for the transport to serve for a long time and not break down, its maintenance should be periodically performed, which consists in daily cleaning after work and lubrication of the connections.
Body shell skin
On the base (platform) of the trailer, vertical posts are installed, to which the sides are welded. It should be noted that the front and side boards are made non-removable, and the tailgate is fixed on hinges for further opening and closing in the event of the need to load various oversized cargo. The body elements are a frame structure, which is made up of metal corners. They are butt welded to each other, and the seams are cleaned.
Board assembly stages:
- the frames of each side are prepared separately;
- take a sheet of galvanized sheet and transfer the dimensions of the sides to it;
- the side is cut to size.
A bottom made of 2 mm metal sheet is placed on the frame of the hitch and welded along the entire perimeter. The distance between the welding points is approximately 4-6 centimeters. The installation procedure begins with the front side, then the side ones, tightly tying them to the front. The tailgate is fixed in the hinges installed on the trailer frame.
Do-it-yourself dump trailer for Tiller Neva: how to make, drawings and dimensions, photos
From the beginning of spring to late autumn, life is in full swing in the homestead and summer cottages. Constantly you need to bring something, transport, take, and the like. Recently, most summer residents have been using tillers, motor-cultivators and other devices for household needs. They are compact, easy to operate, multifunctional and do not take up much space. Most often, the products of the domestic enterprise Neva are used. The trailer on the Tiller Neva will be a good help in your household. In this article we will tell you everything about this equipment.
Tipper trailer on Tiller Neva: photos, drawings
If you have everything you need, you can assemble a dump trailer for a tiller with your own hands. It will meet all your requirements.
First of all, you will need the following tools:
- channel number five;
- welding machine (for convenience, it is better to use a semiautomatic device);
- Angle Grinder.
Having prepared the necessary tools, you need to determine the dimensions of the trailer. The parameters of parts and blanks will depend on them. For work, you can use the drawings of the simplest models of the unit, which are found on the Internet at every step. See the best options, but you can do without them:
Our homemade trailer consists of the following parts: frame, body, wheels and hitch.
- iron pipes of different sizes (preferably 60X30 millimeters and 25X25, respectively);
- small wheels (usually taken from old domestic cars);
- iron sheet (up to 1 millimeter thick, otherwise the trailer will be unnecessarily heavy);
- duralumin sheet.
Why do you need this unit? Due to its versatility, the trailer for the Neva Tiller can be used for a huge number of different jobs:
- movement of cargo;
- removal of household waste;
- transportation of agricultural products and equipment;
- ancillary work.
At the same time, it should be noted that it is not recommended to drive a tiller on a busy highway. This is due to the fact that the tiller Neva with a trailer has limited speed and maneuverability.
Among the rather impressive model range of trailers, the most popular are units with a carrying capacity of two hundred and fifty kilograms to half a ton. Their hitching devices are made of special metal, which is characterized by increased strength.
For better control of the tiller, a braking system is installed on the body axle.
The trailer for the tiller Neva MB-2 is in great demand among gardeners. Its feature is the presence of folding sides. This makes it possible to transport both small and bulk cargo, and objects of impressive size.
First of all, you need to assemble the frame. Smaller tubes (based on the design we are describing. 25X25 millimeters) are used as the front and rear crossbars, and the two larger tubes will become the spars. All structural elements are fastened with welded seams. As a result, you will get a kind of lattice.
After that, you can proceed to the manufacture of the body. The frame is reinforced by attaching twenty-five millimeter pipes to it perpendicular to the grating grid. Then, with the help of a welding machine, longitudinal pipes are attached to them, and four racks are attached to them. The harness is welded to the tops of the posts.
A dump trailer for a tiller should have folding sides, preferably not only at the back, but also on the sides. To achieve this goal, you need to use a welding machine to connect into narrow pipes in three rectangular structures separately from the body.
For the frame sheathing. making the bottom. we use duralumin, and for the sides. iron sheets. It is more expedient to use bolts as fasteners. To attach the sides to the posts and strapping, you will again have to remember about welding.
After that, you can start mounting the beam. To do this, you need to insert two channels into each other. The wheel axles are attached to the rear end of the resulting structure. After that, the beam is welded to the trailed frame using springs.
Now you need to equip the dump trailer with a drawbar. The algorithm of actions is very simple. Two pipes with dimensions of sixty by thirty millimeters are taken. Their front parts are mated and welded to the hitch base. The rear parts of these pipes are attached to the side members with an overlap of two hundred millimeters.
Actually, the trailer is ready. You can start painting. It is not necessary to do this, but it is desirable, since the paint and varnish layer will provide longer protection of the metal from rust and corrosion.
If desired and available, the trailer can be additionally equipped with side lights, turn signals and brake lights. In this case, your product will be practically indistinguishable from the factory counterpart. Here’s an example of how to assemble a simple DIY trailer for a tiller. Made with high quality and economical. This does not require any drawings.
Preparing a drawing of a trailer for a tiller
What size should a homemade trailer for a tiller be:
- If you have a light type of tiller, then the width of the trailer should be equal to 1 m, and the length should be 0.85. 1.15 m. The carrying capacity of such a trailer is about 300 kg.
- If you have a tiller with a capacity of more than 5 liters. with., then there will be the following dimensions: width. 1 m, length. 1.4. 1.5 m.
- For heavy units, a trailer with a width of 1.2 m and a length of 2. 3 m is suitable. They are more often biaxial.
Next, you need to create drawings with your own hands and choose the dimensions of the trailer you need. Only its exact scheme will allow you to successfully create a structure that will serve for many years. Here is an example of a drawing of such a body.

Main characteristics of trailed trolleys for the Neva
At different times, 4 trailer models were developed directly for the Neva trailers:
- Single-axle dump truck with dimensions 110×90 cm and side height. 35 cm. Loading capacity 250 kg, dead weight 56 kg;
- Two-axle chassis trolley with dimensions of 110×90 cm and a side height of 35 cm. Carrying capacity. 500 kg, dead weight. 40 kg;
- TPM trolley with dimensions 133×110 cm and side height. 30 cm. Carrying capacity. up to 250 kg, dead weight. 110 kg;
- TPM-M trolley with dimensions 140×82.5 cm and a side height of 25 cm.Carrying capacity. only up to 150 kg, dead weight. 85 kg.
However, this does not mean at all that only these 4 carts can be hooked to the Neva Tiller. The vast majority of modern trailers are equipped with a universal hitch that allows them to be attached to any self-propelled mechanism, so you can safely take any one you like. But still, before buying another brand of trailer, it is better to first make sure that the hitch on it is suitable for your model of two-wheeled assistant.
Basic rules for choosing a cart for Tiller Neva
Trailers for tillers, be they Centaur, AGRO, Neva MB2 or Motor Sich, are not designed for driving on busy roads, let alone highways. Their main purpose is to transport goods from vegetable gardens and summer cottages, while it is better to move them outside the road network, so as not to create an emergency on the roads.
When choosing a trailer for the Neva Tiller, as for any other brand, you need to correctly correlate the trailer’s load capacity and the power of your mechanic. If we talk about choosing a trolley for the Neva Tiller, then, with the exception of the heavy MB-23 model range, the rest of the model line is equipped with engines from 5.5 to 7.5 hp. Therefore, the optimal solution for them would be the choice of a towing device with a carrying capacity of 250 to 500 kg. The towing device for the Neva MB 23 tiller can be taken with a carrying capacity of up to 1 ton. these powerful mechanisms will have enough strength to drag such a load.
The rest of the rules when choosing a trailed cart for any tiller, incl. and for the Neva, they are dictated not so much by concern for the tiller as by common sense and ease of use. When choosing, you need to pay attention to:
- Body material. It is better to choose a trolley, the body of which is made of galvanized steel. it is not afraid of frost, heat, rain and dirt.
- The presence of folding sides and dump body dumping to load and unload the cart was easier and more convenient.
- Availability and quality of brakes. Since it is often necessary to transport goods with a tiller on uneven terrain, having reliable brakes on a steep descent will save you from major troubles.
Observing these simple rules, you can choose a trailer for the Neva Tiller that will serve you for many years. But if, for some reason, you do not want to buy a factory trailer, then it is easy to make it yourself. The main thing is to find good drawings of a self-made trailing device and acquire the necessary tools and materials for this. But that’s another topic for conversation.
Trolley (trailer) for a tiller: how to choose the right one or do it yourself
A trolley for a tiller, even equipped with a 5-7 hp engine, for example, the Neva, not to mention more powerful models, is not just a necessary thing, but irreplaceable in the household. Such a hitch allows the tiller to be used not only for agricultural work, but also as a vehicle. According to statistics, the owners of tillers first of all equip their two-wheeled friends with a cultivator, a hiller and a cart, and only then they begin to slowly acquire or make other attachments and trailed equipment with their own hands.
How to make a trailer for a tiller with your own hands. assembly steps
- For a regular frame, we only need 2 tubes and wheels with bearings. We can attach the body itself to the finished frame. In order to soften the shaking on potholes, you just need to install a spring.
- We collect a homemade motoblock trailer. To begin with, an additional pipe is attached to the main pipe, which will play the role of an axis. Then, on the other side, a hitch for the trailer trailer is mounted. We weld the hubs onto the ends of the axle tube. Next, we fix the wheels and fix the parking stop. Attaching the body, fenders and seat.
- The body is better made of wood or metal.
- Particular attention should be paid to the trailer hub, it must be strong and reliable.
How to make a trailer for a tiller with your own hands?
By design, the bodies are divided into:
- Whole. The peculiarity of their design lies in the tight fixed connection of the bottom and walls.
- Body with drop sides. A feature of such a device is the ability to transport bulky goods.
- Tipper body. This body will perfectly cope with unloading work.
How to make brakes on a trailer to a tiller?
In order to put home-made brakes on the body and ensure a safe ride on the tiller, it is worth acquiring a few details for its design:
- Motorcycle brake pads.
- Motorcycle brake drum.
- Spokes from a motorcycle wheel.
- Better to set the brake on both wheels. This will allow you to effectively perform braking equipment.
Stages of work:
- We remove the rods and cables from the disc, and clean it.
- We put on drums on the hubs and fix them at the back.
- The free space that has formed between the ribs of the drums must be wrapped with metal wire.
- We put the already collapsible disc on the axle and fasten it with bushings.
- We weld a piece of metal onto the axle to prevent disc displacement.
- We mount the cables on the drums and stretch them to the control.
- The control system can be a gear lever.
In principle, having a good scheme with accurate calculations, you can easily design both a single-axle and a two-axle dump body yourself. The main thing is to know how to do it and follow all the instructions. Having made such equipment yourself, you will find an incredible assistant for working on the sites.
Simple trailer for the “Neva” tiller
To start making a cart with your own hands, you need to prepare the following materials and tools:
- duralumin sheet with a thickness of 2 mm;
- steel sheets with a thickness of 0.8 mm;
- springs and wheels;
- steel pipes 25×25 and 60×30 mm;
- welding machine;
- Angle Grinder.
The trailer frame will be a one-piece structure mounted on a frame grille. For its manufacture, two traverses 25×25 mm must be made transverse and pipes 60×30 mm must be attached to them so that the result is a lattice.
Two longitudinal pipes are welded to the finished lattice, on top of which a 25×25 mm strapping is attached by welding. Sheets of steel will serve as material for the sides, which are cut to the required dimensions and welded.
The turn of the beam has come, for the manufacture of which two channels will be needed. The elements are inserted into each other, after which the wheel axles are put on one of the ends of the resulting part.
The spar is connected by means of springs, the end of which should be put on the beam axle and the shackle axle. Then, the central part of the springs must be welded to the same beam with stepladders.
Last but not least, you need to make a drawbar with your own hands from 60×30 mm pipes. They should be docked and, by welding, one part should be attached to the trailer, and the other to the side members.
A simple tiller trailer is ready. I would like to note that experts recommend using a welding machine to connect its parts. Such a mount will allow you to operate the structure for a long time.
First of all, you need to think about what size the trailer should be so that it fits a certain tiller, and it is convenient to use it. After that, you will need to sketch a drawing or a sketch of the trolley, on which to display the structure from different angles, put down all the dimensions and draw the nodes.
Do-it-yourself trolley trolley: dimensions, drawings, video
Equipment such as a tiller is an excellent assistant when working in the field, garden, country house or farm. To expand the capabilities of the equipment, you can attach a towing device to it and transport soil, garbage, crops, tools and other heavy or bulky goods. You can make a trailer for the tiller with your own hands, spending just a few days on it. The result is an irreplaceable assistant that will facilitate further work.
You need to think over everything to the smallest detail, so that during the assembly of equipment there are no difficulties. To do this, you need to understand:
- screwing, riveting or welding will connect non-separable units and parts;
- how axles, bearings, bushings, hinges will be connected;
- which seat is better to install (simple or rotating);
- from what to make an emphasis on the legs for the parking;
- Do you need a tipping body, to which you will have to add a mechanical tipper or a self-dumping unit with a special handle;
- which unit of attachment to the tiller to select (on bearings, bushings or articulated).
Having dealt with all these questions, you can start preparing a list of necessary materials and calculating the approximate cost of the future trailer.
Do-it-yourself multifunctional trailer for a tiller: stages of work, video instruction
Having decided on the dimensions and sketching a drawing, you should calculate how many meters of rolled metal and how many channels will be needed to make a homemade trailer. This is necessary in order to protect yourself from unnecessary costs for the purchase of unnecessary parts and fasteners.
Required materials and tools:
- welding machine;
- steel corners 40×40 mm and 50×25 mm;
- timber measuring 50×50 mm;
- boards 20 mm thick;
- cutting pipes of round and rectangular cross-section;
- complete wheels with hub.
The future trailer will consist of four main units connected by welding.
- The frame is assembled from scraps of pipes and corners of 40×40 mm and 50×25 mm and the frame is connected by welding.
- The body is made of 20 mm planks, the nodes of which are then sheathed with steel corners.
- With the help of three supporting beams, the role of which is played by wooden beams, the body is mounted on the trailer frame.
- Wheels are installed on the structure. Before this, it is necessary to sharpen the ends of the axle rod so that its diameter matches the dimensions of the hub bearings. It is necessary to follow the length of the rod. When assembled, the wheels must not protrude beyond the rims of the body.
- Through the corner supports and gussets, the rod is welded to the body of the longitudinal hinge and the side members.
- The trailer will be attached to the tiller using a do-it-yourself console. The lower part of this element is the axis around which the pivot unit rotates. The upper part should be made so that it follows the contours of the hiller holder. The console is attached to the attachment bracket.
- To make the wheels of the trailer work independently of the wheels of the tiller, and make the equipment easy to operate, it is recommended to insert the drawbar into the body of the longitudinal hinge and secure with thrust rings.
The tiller trailer is ready. Now you can fix the footrest and the driver’s seat, from which the equipment will be controlled.
Homemade trailer to the tiller from car parts
Having drawn up a drawing in advance and prepared the necessary materials and tools, you can assemble such a trailer with your own hands in 1-2 days.
For work you will need:
- front axle shafts from Zhiguli or Moskvich;
- channel 65 mm along the body length;
- corners 60×60 mm;
- two pipes 2 m long;
- one pipe 60×40 mm, 3-5 m long;
- welding machine.
The bearing part of the structure will be the axle, which is made from a channel. Its length depends on the length of the future trailer. On both sides of the channel, the axle shafts from the car are connected by welding. Profile pipes are installed on top:
- One pipe is centered. She will act as a drawbar. Its length must be selected in accordance with the dimensions of the hitch.
- Two-meter pipes are laid along the edges of the channel, in the place where it meets the ends of the axle shafts. As a result, the channel joint must divide each pipe in half.
- Short pipes are laid parallel to each other and fastened perpendicularly with corners.
To ensure the structure of strength and rigidity, profile corners or pipes should be pulled from the front corners of the trolley. Joints can be bolted or welded.
The trailer frame is ready. Now you can install on it a simple wooden body made with your own hands, a seat and attach it to the drawbar.
After watching the video instructions and studying the article, you can understand that in order to make a trailer for a tiller with your own hands, you do not need to be a designer or mechanic. To implement the plan, you will need a drawing, the necessary tools, materials and a little desire and free time.
